Introduction

Adrienne Su's Peaches, first published in 2015 on the Academy of American Poets online Poem-a-Day series, recounts the speaker's memories of eating peaches with her Chinese American family at her childhood home in Georgia. Through the hard work of her parents, who immigrated to the United States from China, the speaker and her siblings have never known hunger. When asked by strangers where she is from, the speaker likes to imagine answering that she, like the peach, is Chinese American. Peaches, like the speaker's family, originated in China but have become an American favorite. Written in conversational free verse, Peaches is at once accessible and sweet, as the speaker weighs her identity against the words of strangers and the love of her family.
